What Our Virtual Practice Graduates Are Saying
“The telehealth training webinar was great! Discussing the software you use and brief demos of each was helpful. Thanks again for all that you do!!” –
- Audrey Taylor, JD, Former Standard Process Representative
“Michael is one of the leading lecturers within the field of acupuncture and Oriental medicine (AOM). One of his areas of expertise is business and practice management. Michael taught the business curriculum at our School from 2004 to 2011, to all levels of students. He has a very knowledgeable understanding of how one’s private practice needs to be developed through specific business plans, marketing, and strategize financial goals. Michael also emphasizes the importance of being self-cultivated in order to have a successful practice. I recommend Michael as a lecturer within the field of practice management, for any course of study.”

“I like the wisdom from experience, in sharing the little things we haven’t thought about yet, that have happened to you or things to be prepared for. I appreciated your recommendation to do a 15 min free consult in order for you both to decide to move forward or not. I also liked hearing how you do things, your fees and schedule of visits, as well as how different products and services have worked for you.”
